The Sweetest Thing

With Valentine’s Day coming, the discussion always turns to chocolate, amiright? And while chocolate is good, very good, we both know that our resolutions centered around healthier eating and less scarfing chocolate. So bless Too Faced heart for creating their newest sweet thing in beauty. The Semi-Sweet Chocolate Bar. It even sounds delicious, doesn’t it?

Obsessive Compulsive Cosmetics is offering the MAD LOVE’ LIP TAR & STAINED GLOSS TRIO SET, $39.50 ($72 VALUE).   Available exclusively on occmakeup.com  the trio set includes a trio of textures to play with:  Matte, Metallic, and Stained Gloss.  Wear each shade alone for seductively simple pouts or mix shades and textures together to take your lips to new heights of color sensation. Look at those lips! Amazing!

November Favorites and Unfavorites

Hey Everyone,

I know I’m late on this, but better that than never, right? I have a few favorites to share with you and one unfavorite. So, let’s get started!

My first favorite is the Philip Kingsely One More Day Dry Shampoo:
 What could be better than not having to wash your hair every single day? Second day hair rules and Philip Kingsley’s One More Day gives it to you with ease.
Just spray this delicious-smelling formula at the roots, let it sit for a few minutes and then brush through. You might see a little whitecast, but nothing a good brushing can’t remove.

Goodbye, oil-slick, hello body!

 I’m also loving this EOS Winter Trio

With lips as chapped as mine tend to be in the fall and winter months, this is a life saver. I use it during the day and before I go to bed to soothe and moisturize my lips.

With fragrances like Sweet Mint, Limited Edition Vanilla Bean and Pomegranate Raspberry, there’s enough to get you through the cold and chilly months.

 Lush Rose Jam Shower Gel

I’ve mentioned it before, but it bears repeating. This shower gel rocks! The great Lemon/Rose fragrance fills the shower with scent and it lingers beautifully on skin. This is limited edition, so you’ll want to make sure you pick one up or order it before Christmas!

Makeup For Ever Midnight Glow Palette

This wintery snow inspired palette is a great mix of shimmers and matte colors – giving you options to create soft or smokey looks. Give lids a simple wash or color, or experiment with 2 or more colors for a cool, frosty look.

And my one Unfavorite:

I wanted to like this – I really did. I had heard great things about the Too-Faced Better Than False Lashes Mascara. But, it was not for me. I found it clumped, and my upper and lower lashes stuck together and it’s hard to get off.

After removing it before bed I though I was fine, but I woke up the next morning seeing that my lashes were clumped together still and very coated.

I just couldn’t get it right, despite the time and chances I gave it. What a bummer.

Know something I should add? Let me know on twitter @BeautybyBrett I’d love to hear from you!
